    OS Choose option shows Ubuntu also after deletion


    I previously used ubuntu in my Windows 8 Pro and Windows got many errors so i deleted the folder of ubuntu..did not uninstalled and all that. now it shows ubuntu on OS choose Screen. then i thought installing Ubuntu would overwrite the existing one..but sadly i have two Ubuntu Choice..one is empty and another is working.

    Now, how can i edit that screens setting. by setting i dont mean going to advance setting and choosing default os. I want to edit like in Windows 7, boot.ini file.or If there's any other way to remove that empty Ubuntu from the OS choice Option

    EasyBCD is the easiest way to edit the boot menu in Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8.

    Don't we have any other solution inside Windows 8 system to edit such things.

    Sure, BCDEdit, but it's command line and a pita to use until you understand it. EasyBCD makes it very simple.

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt and enter bcdedit /? for info.
